My Visit to the George Bush Museum and Library
It is very interesting that in order to visit the museum, they basically do the same level of security as the TSA at the airport. If former President George Bush were actually there it might make sense but anyway, I had nothing to hide so no worries. The baseball and Presidents exhibit was very interesting. It shows Baseball and the Presidents throughout history. The pitch thrown by President George Bush during the World Series after 9-11 was a very moving display.

Run for your Lives, Bing Really Is Everywhere!

So unless you use Chrome or visit the Google.com site or you are running an Android device or installed the Google Search app on your favorite iOS device, when you search, you are probably using Bing. Microsoft has been working hard to worm its way into your life. Whether by bribing you to use their search engine or being the backend of Yahoo search, they are invading. If you took the default search engine of Yahoo in the latest Firefox, you are Bing'ing. So be careful out there. Choose your browser and Search Engine wisely as you might be getting Bing'led..

Do you allow Google Location Services? Try this creepy feature.

So you have Google Location services on, sure, it isn't sharing your location with others maybe but it does mean Google can find your device. Try this if you are an Android user, just to go Google Search and type in "Find My Phone". After a logon to prove you are who you think you are, it will probably tell you where your phone is. And it will give you an option to ring it.

Because iPhone is jealous of Lollipop?

So basically an app is being developed that will only work on jailbroken iPhone 6 to make it have an interface like Google's Lollipop. While I agree I prefer Lollipop to iOS 8, you would be hard pressed to convince your average user Lollipop is a better interface for iPhone. For Android phones, it is the best interface we have every had and I think it is great. But if you root your iPhone, this may be the app for you.

Video Games to build teamwork at the office?

Sure, ask your boss where on your TPS report this goes, but maybe paying video games with your peers will build teamwork.

"Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted but getting what you have, which once you have it you may be smart enough to see is what you would have wanted had you known." - Garrison Keillor
Introduction
Computers, Technology, and Gadgets seem to be my life. 

History
Okay, Computers and I aren't dating or anything like that, but I have had a computer under my fingertips since the Commodore Vic 20. Apple 2c and 2e, the first Macintosh's, Tandy TRS80 (pronounced Trash 80), Tandy 1000, even the lowly Timex Sinclair and Coleco Adam. 

In the IBM clone days, I remember booting from a DOS disk and then loading Turbo PASCAL. Two floppy drives in one machine were all the rage then.

Now
Now I live in a world of databases of many flavors and versions as I am part DBA (Oracle, MySQL, MS SQL), OSes of many flavors and versions as I am part system administrator (Windows, UNIX, and Linux), and Enterprise and Mission Critical applications as I am part Basis Administrator (SAP, Maximo, Email, and any other ) that should probably cause me to lose more sleep, but I sleep pretty well. 

My second passion is teaching Computer Technology. I try to share that passion with my students. Knowledge is power. If I ever stop learning, declare me dead.

Spare Time?
In my spare time (Ha ha!) I love living the Internet dream, whether is is being a part of "the social networks" or creating content for my blog and others. (L.A.M.P. Rocks!)

Currently working on two books at the same time (one, a Textbook, the other, science fiction)

Working to be relevant even though I am 2,500+ miles away from Silicon Valley and other Tech Hubs of the world.

BTW, I am NOT a social media expert, nor do I claim to be.

The views expressed are mine alone and not those of my employers.

    Where ever the wind takes me, 1996 - present
    Rather than list my employment history, this is my non-existent company that encompasses every work experience, interest and hobby I have. I decided if I ever started a company it would be called Mirror Abstract Productions and I created the original logo in the Paint program on an early gray scale Macintosh which I printed out on an early dot matrix printer.

If you are looking for great BBQ, then you need to find the Carolina Barbecue Shack. It is hidden behind the University Grill. Take the road beside M&M Tire and find the sign. Take a right and drive on back to the building. They offer pulled pork, hash, beef brisket, and smoked turkey. You will want to add a baked Potato and barbecue beans to that plate with a roll. They have a Shack Sauce, which is a ranch/sour cream based sauce with a hint of garlic that is so good you could probably use it to eat a rock. It tastes great on everything. You will be hard pressed to decide which BBQ sauce to go with, their signature Carolina Barbecue Shack Barbecue sauce or their Carolina Gold sauce, which is a mustard based sauce. They have lots of sides to choose from but the baked potato with the Shack Sauce and barbecue beans are my favorite. Don't want to cook supper, go by and get a Family pack. When they first opened there were picnic tables outside. Then they added an awning for the tables to be under. Over the last couple of years they build a nice building with beautiful tables, air conditioning, and a big screen TV.
